FREMONT (CBS SF) — Police and fire crews rescued a 6-month-old infant who was accidentally locked in a hot car by the infant’s mother in the parking lot of a Target store in Fremont on Thursday, police said.
Fremont police officers responded to a report of an upset mother in a parking lot outside the Fremont Hub Shopping Center located near Fremont Boulevard and Mowry Avenue.
Upon arrival, an officer saw that the infant was in distress and that the vehicle was hot inside, with sunlight directly on the infant’s face, according to police.
Fremont fire officials also responded and attempted to gain entry to the car with a lockout tool, but it was taking too long, police said.
The officers decided to break a window in order to gain immediate entry into the car.
The window smashed and the infant was recovered uninjured, police said.
